Half a million on Miranda, guy is a BJJ black belt (Maia didn't submit Miller and struggled to submit J-Mac) Miranda is also a greco roman guy so he should be hard to take down and he has 6 wins by knock out and only one loss by knockout. I think he can steal a whole lot of Maia's hype here especially considering he is really lanky and if he can use his reach he will win this fight.

And that is why Toxic is a wise man...

Wise bettors are laying dough on Miranda at the books.

Jus sayin.

His range and striking should keep Maia at bay. Chance of a KO/TKO, but should win by decision, as I doubt he'll jump onto Maia when he grounds him with strikes
